It's the dropping or drooping cave - the doo-cot cave is further round the hill. Comment left on 07 April 2011 at 10:03 by Sue Florence
Sue, is the drooping cave the one with the stalagtites and stalagmites? Been there but not to the doo-cot. Can`t believe I went in there! Comment left on 08 April 2011 at 21:40 by Dorothy Ewen (Robertson)
Hi dorothy- aye that's the one-I can' t remember which teacher who taught us geography and about the formation of caves- that stalagtites came down and stalagmites went up. Lots of laughter in class after that nugget of info. Comment left on 10 April 2011 at 12:32 by Anonymous
